Active Newcomers - Let's go!

Active Newcomers - Let's go!

Early August, we launched our new program "Active Newcomers".

Newcomers in Germany often have many questions, but finding the answers to those questions is not always an easy feat. With "Active Newcomers" we encourage refugees to integrate faster and to establish connections by helping other newcomers in Berlin to get socially involved.

The new program is supported by our patron, the Berlin State Secretary Sawsan Chebli: "Refugees volunteer to get to know people, languages and professional life in Germany - and give something back to society as well. For many, it's exactly the opportunity they're looking for."

The project was kicked off in front of a large audience at the Volunteering Jungle in the Alte Münze. Through this project, newcomers and interested parties could talk to each other and find out about volunteering prospects from over 30  different organizations in Berlin. With the variety of opportunities, it instantly becomes clear that social engagement and commitment could be much more than handing out soup.
